I loved this inter-related series of short stories featuring a nameless neurotic (to say the least!), macrobiotic protagonist - terrific parody of the northeastern upper middle class. Being familiar with (some combination of) New York City, the Hamptons, and Nantucket helps.
The constant prescence of Dr. Arnold Loquesto got old after a while, but his being such a jerk does fit with the protagonist's obsessive nature. Nameless's fixation of finding "evidence" of anti-Semitism everywhere grew old, too, though I took that as part of the parody.
a series of hilarious linked tales documenting the mania of modern day in devastating detail. The author and narrator has set herself the goal of photographing a world-famous surgeon, Walden Pond, the ponds of Nantucket, and all the houses Anne Sexton ever lived in. On the way, she searches for organically grown vegetables, windows that open, and an endodontist who acts like a normal person. Very funny!
